For years fertilizers and other chemicals have been broadly applied, leading to a long list of problems. Learn about the $7-million initiative designed to change that, using machine learning, AI, and advanced computing to make farming far more sustainable.

Community Data Clinic

The Community Data Clinic functions as a hub for developing community-centered solutions for a data-driven world.

Dark Energy Survey

According to Einstein’s theory of general relativity, the expansion of the cosmos should be slowing, but science has shown it’s actually speeding up.

Computer Hardware


Delta offers a balanced mixture of CPU and GPU nodes and, upon its launch, will be the most performant GPU computing resource in the National Science Foundation’s portfolio.


The NSF EarthCube program has advanced how data and tools are found and utilized – as well as scientific scholarship itself – by issuing one of the first Call for Notebooks as peer-reviewed, scholarly objects emphasizing runnable software.
